Spitzberg Range, Goschenen Valley, Uri, Switzerland
This specimen is an unusually formed and especially pointed quartz from the famous quartz locality of Goschenen Valley in Uri, Switzerland. The crystal has a rare tessin habit where the prism continuously tapers toward the termination, by alternating steep rhombohedral and “m” prism faces upward until it reaches a perfect point. Chlorite has formed outside of the crystal as well as inclusions internally, giving the clear quartz a green color. Included quartz from this area is commonly polished. This specimen is natural, unpolished, and without damage. There is a surprising degree of internal clarity to this specimen, and glows a great green color with directed lighting.
